On October 10, 2014, it was announced that Legendary Television was developing a new reboot of Lost in Space and had hired Dracula Untold screenwriting duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless to pen the new series.   On June 29, 2016, Netflix ordered the series with 10 episodes.  
Toby Stephens: “It’s a very clever, modern reworking of a great story.” Lost In Space is a Swiss family Robinson in space, so it was a story that existed before Lost In Space . That it’s a family that is lost in a difficult, life-threatening situation and how it challenges them and brings them closer together. “That is essentially what the story of this is, it’s just a lot more modern. It’s a more modern take on the 60s version. If you look at it now, it’s charming, but it seems so innocent. Whereas this is a version that is for our time. I’m hoping it will still have humor and humanity in it, but it has obviously gotta be for a modern audience. ”
